    Elling to get another chance

    Vikings: Elling to get another chance

    by Fanball Staff - Fanball.com

    News
    The Vikings addressed their defensive needs via free agency, but they neglected to sign a kicker to replace Morten Andersen. Although drafting a kicker remains a possibility, Vikings' officials have indicated that they intend to give Aaron Elling another chance to win the starting job, according to Monday's Star Tribune. Elling lost his job and later suffered a broken ankle last season.

    This news leads us to believe that the Vikings are targeting Ohio State kicker Mike Nugent in the draft. Head coach Mike Tice has been infuriated by the kicking game throughout his tenure, so it's hard to imagine he's willing to roll the dice on Elling again, especially when the third-year kicker is returning from a significant injury.

    Elling to get another chance

    I'd hate to use a second round draft pick on a kicker but Elling??? Could be using Elling as a cover to see if Nugent could drop down from the second round. But personnally i'd rather throw the ball on fourth downs then hope that Elling can make the field goal.

    Exactly, would be much more successful leaving the ball in Culpeppers hands rather than the foot of Elling.

    Elling to get another chance

    I think tice is just trying to give the impression we will draft RB at 7 and stick with Elling so we can really get williams and nuge for sure its all smoke screens elling is garbage his only half way decent strength was kick offs but oh well nuge can handle that and is even got a stronger leg.......Im willin to bet Nuge can kick with acuracy farther that elling can chuck a football lol hes garbage

    From VU:
    * More than a couple mock drafts have the Vikings taking Ohio State kicker Mike Nugent with their second-round pick. The only way that happens is if Scott Studwell is bound and gagged – and that’s considered mutiny in the war room.


    This doesn't sound too promising that we want to take nugent. I sure as hell hope we do, elling had his shots, too many of them already.
